Last Friday's report: Started out with $200 bankroll, got up to $440 and cashed out at Trop, before heading to Planet Hollywood.. but got to play with Kathy Liebert aka @PokerKat as well the night before this, walked away with $100 profit. Paid for dinner at Bacio :) (excellent!) ... Wasn't feeling well, so I ate and planned on going home, but the games were good, and I felt better after I ate, so I played what ended up being all night at PH... Turned $300 into around $750 (pictured). Then planned on heading home, walked the strip down to Tropicana to cheer on friends. Bought some card protectors, a new hat, supplies at Walgreens on the way, etc..
Ended up playing Tropicana for the promotion money for 5 more hours. 32 hours, my longest marathon session, one I don't expect to break again for a LONG time, if ever ;) Total profit over $1440. $1260 after all expenses. (started with $200) ..time to get a 2/5 size bankroll ;)
I work a lot, so I haven't been playing as much as I'd like, but on the home front, playing online with my hit and run, no more than 1000 hands, often around 300 hand sessions, I have run my $40 deposit up to $102 for a fairly high winrate, though still in small sample range. That's ok, I'll take it ;) we'll see how long I can keep it going. I don't feel I'm running hot or running bad, it just all seems to be balancing out, the good and the bad both.
I'm playing a fairly lag style, but mixing it up. In general I've lowered my VPIP a little and raised my PFR but they are still a FAR cry from the old days of trying to shoot for 14/12 ... I'm more like 45/25 or so, and will adapt to whatever is needed on a per table/per player basis and use my image as much as possible. I find that I do better when not "showing" to try to induce action. If I show any more, it's usually with friends and for fun, or a really dead table trying to get action, but I'll rarely stay at such a dead table any longer.
I adjust play based on effective stacks.. normal TAG for 100bb stacks, and deepstack play for anything over 175bb or so. 35bb/100 combined at just over 2800 hands so far... this is on Merge, and I sure miss @PokerStars !
